I stay in Gent a lot and the River hotel is my current favourite.
The location is excellent, right next to the Friday Market square with its restaurants and cafe bars, and car parking is simple with the underground Fridaymarket car park right next to the hotel.
The rooms in my opinion are much better than a standard chain hotel room. Well decorated, excellent bath/shower rooms, comfortable beds, and very spacious. The rooms have a bit of character as well given the hotel is an old property renovated, and each room is different to the next in layout. I can't ever remember being bothered by noise in the hotel (I've stayed at least half a dozen times) which is always a good sign.
The breakfast room is bright and has excellent views, as well as serving a good selection of food and drink.
Ok, the hotel bar is not the best, but then who comes to Gent and drinks in their hotel bar given the selection on offer in the city?
Staff are always pleasant. Its not the cheapest hotel I've stayed in but then the hotel prices in Gent have been rising and other than the Ibis and a few other smaller hotels, the price here is pretty standard for the city.
